I have young twins and having worked full time as a Sales Executive for many major fortune 100 companies for the past 20 years, I understand the struggles of working parents. Having moved into the area with the boys I also understand the issues of finding quality trustworthy care for my children. It was such an incredible struggle to find a nanny, that I joined the College Nannies and Tutors family to help other families with this very important issue.
Welcome to my Profile!
My name is Juanairis and, hereby, I would like to offer my services as a babysitter/nanny/tutor. But first, let me tell you a little more about myself. I have two kids of my own, ages 19 and 12 years old. I consider myself to be a good mom and love my children with all my heart. I have cared for family members and friend's kids and I recently worked for a mental counseling agency that serves kids in the Mid-Fairfield area, for which a background check was conducted prior to employment, as a job requirement.
I am dependable, respectful and honest. I enjoy working with kids, I'm very patient, loving and strive to do the best in everything I do. I have a bachelors degree in English Language Arts from Hunter College and I am very fluent in Spanish, which is my native language. I'm eager and more than willing to care for your children just as if they were my own. I possess CPR/AED/First Aid certifications and I have an Associates in Medical Assisting as well. I have a clean driving record and I have never been in trouble with the law.
I'm sure there's a lot more you would like to know about me, so, please feel free to ask any questions when we meet. Thank you so much for your trust!
I believe that I am a great role model to the children and families I have worked with for various reasons. One of the first being that I am very determined. I graduated high school early because of my achievements in my grades and credits. Also, I am currently completing my last year of my undergraduate degree University of Massachusetts Amherst where I double major political science and legal studies. I am an active member of the school's Mock Trial team at school and am further honored to be called the team's vice president. I have received various mock trial awards, including a the worlds best witness award at an international competition that I competed.
I have also performed my entire life. Growing up, I spent the majority of my time dancing, acting, performing in musicals, cheerleading and playing field hockey. Currently my newest interest is dancing with hula hoops and learning how to do tricks with them. I love doing any creative and new activities because of how the challenge me while having a great time participating in them as well!
Lead by example. I am results oriented and have seven years of educational experience across all abilities and age groups, with a focus on special education and learning disabilities. I set clear goals and develop plans to achieve them. Goals without a plan are simply wishes.
Working at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp has shown me that one of the most important aspects of our lives is our ability to connect with and help others. Our ability to stand as role models and to reach out and inspire the good in others is invaluable. As counselors, we are aware of the impact we can have on our campers. The kids that come to camp often leave inspired by these experiences and an obvious example of this is their desire to become counselors in the future.
I’ve found that I can facilitate a different kind of inspiration at Camp, too. Some campers are reluctant to share too much of themselves. We usually say they “need to come out of their shell.” As someone who grew up incredibly introverted, I find that I can relate to them. By reaching out and acting as an example of someone who has overcome this, I show them that I understand and that I can help. Giving them this attention can help them to try new things and to realize the connections they could make with others.
They leave camp equipped with new potential to reach out to those around them a little more. When I see them in subsequent years, they are usually a little less reserved than the previous year. Each year, they leave with a little more confidence in themselves, and I think that’s the most important thing I could inspire in anyone.
